Things are quiet,

night has fallen,

and the stars are in full bloom.

The wind whispers

and rattles and moans

as I lie in my room—

patiently waiting,

sleeping, not dreaming,

I lie within my room.

The world is dark;

the night is cold

and shrouds all in gloom

as I wait—

for what, I know not,

but it should be coming soon,

for slowly I wake

and my first steps I take

as I slip from my tomb.
